, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stu

francisco no longer being an affordable place for so many san franciscans. i had the opportunity to visit with my staff. one of the microunits as they're called, and the units that i visited were actually a little bit larger than what's being proposed here, over 200 square feet. and one of the things that struck me is the fact that even though they do maximum the use of the space, that you're still talking about very small units units that we saw, you were talking about these units potentially being rented at $1500 a month, which is not a lot of space for $1500. so that kind of goes to the crux of my concern, which is, as we're building these microunits, are we, in a way, creating or exacerbating the problem by setting pretty high bar in terms of how expensive housing is. if a 230 square feet unit is going to rent for $1500, what does that do to the rest of the places in san francisco. that is the concern. because of that concern, if we had the first item, item 15, being presented to us on its own, i would be voting against the legislation. but i do think that the existence of item

perspective. domestic violence has been worked on much longer in san francisco at a policy level and you will see that reflected in the numbers, but again when you combine elder abuse and child abuse and domestic violence it's san francisco's most reported crime, family violence. so you will see that still the majority of the calls that are coming in -- thank you -- come in to the community. as many of you know, and as the president of the police commission said it's rarely the first time by the time the police are called or there is a criminal justice response and not everyone wants a criminal justice response so we are proud to be part of a community that speaks over 60 languages; that operates crisis l shelters and legal services for over 30 years and we are very proud of that. we are very proud of the probably 20 years, but certainly the last 10, of really working closely with the criminal justice system as well, so when you look at the number of calls -- i don't think this is on my slide, but i will tell you the number of calls that come in on the crisis line 24/7 approaches 25,000 a yea

have been better used to find out why this gay man, who was a city employee at san francisco general hospital, and he worked side by side with me, why the city has actively in my opinion blunted any inquiry into his death. and i would urge that the owners of this bar do the public service by asking why any supervisor for this district so far has refuetzd to step forward and ask what happened to joseph malison, why was this gay man in my opinion bullied and forced to die a gruesome death while a city employee. it's been 13 years and some people i know down in new orleans said that there's such a thing as a curse and maybe the curse of joe might be one of the reasons why the gay community has not been flourishing during the last 13 years. thank you. >> next speaker, is there anyone else who would like to speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, can we move this forward without objection? >> item 5 is an ordinance amending the health code to prohibit smoking at certain outdoor events. >> thank you, colleagues, i am the sponsor of this item. i am urging your support for

no more than 20 kids and a school with small teacher-children ratios which reflects san francisco values. by teaching social responsibility and justice, inclusion, green living, bean a small locally run business while providing a curriculum that prepares children academically, socially and emotional for kindergarten. commissioners it was not our in[t-ebts/] to bulldoze into the neighbor and not include our new neighbors in the process. i have never done this before and if anything i have been a bit naive in the process. i thought everyone would be happy a small mom and pop school -- excuse me, especially since there are so many families living there. excuse me. after i spoke with some of the neighbors i felt i had a better understanding why there were so many reservations. there was a bad experience with the halfway house and some of the community felt they had no input and there was rumors of a brothel. we heard a community meeting and provided a professional facilitator to provide an opportunity to meet face-to-face and answer questions especially many regards to parking, traffic, zoni

taxis in san francisco. taxi service is not where it needs to be. people still have incredible trouble getting a cab, whether they are visiting the city, whether they are living in the city, and if we want people to be able to live here without owning their own vehicles we need to give good cab service. i know that the mta has been moving forward with some very positive measures to improve service and i want to commend the mta for doing that and today we'll be having our quarterly update and miss hiashi is here from the mta so i'd like to invite her up to provide a update. >> chris hiashi, deputy director of taxis and accessible service. 2013 is going to be an exciting year for taxi service in san francisco. around the end of the year in a few weeks a report from our best practices consultant who is looking at best practices in taxi regulations throughout the country and internationally. we're very much looking forward to the results of this study because, among other things, it represents a very comprehensive data collection effort from customers and stake holders that has not

. i will stress that san francisco is a city with a dichotomy going on. in many ways, we are a cutting edge city in terms of technology, food, transportation, there are all sorts of things where we are ahead of the curve. we attract a lot of people like you who are forward-thinking and want to do things in a different and more innovative way. we're also a really old school city. the change is challenging. david and i talk about this a lot. we're trying to do things differently. we get a lot of reflexive push back, whether you are talking about cars sharing on streets, or changing zoning to create new housing to make the city more affordable and inclusive. you have those kinds of difficult conversations. so much of this is about educating the city as a whole from all generations and perspectives. our housing policies and transportation systems are not always sustainable. if we want to remain a cutting edge and diversity that draws all sorts of people here, we're going to have to change. we're going to have to consider new ways of doing things the year or two ago we may not have

are not here with us and that is the people of san francisco. for years before i joined the board of supervisors i served on with many volunteers the community advisory group to the central subway. with countless volunteers from the bay view, from visitation valley, from mission bay, south of market, union square, and of course thousands of residents and leaders from chinatown who went to countless public meetings provided tens of thousands of signatures, and stood for years to work extremely hard for world class transportation into the heart of our city, but we know we are building the central subway not just based on our history but for our future. by the year 2040 we will have 100,000 new households and 200,000 new workers and thousands of new daily car trips. we have to prepare for the future. let me close with a couple of quick thoughts. first i believe that our connecting community slogan it is real. we are the greatest city in the united states and we are an incredible city because our communities come together for our subway and for our giants. second, we have to do more. we
